Leaving Port Canaveral aboard the Disney Wonder

This cruise is a 3 night cruise aboard the Disney Wonder. It leaves from Port Canaveral, Florida and stops in Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney's own private island, Castaway Cay. Port Canveral is about 45 minutes from the Orlando airport and can be transfered to on Disney Cruise Lines Magical Express.

The first thing you will notice when you board the ship is that it is NOT DisneyWorld. It is very luxurious with subtle Disney hints everywhere you look. The ship is beautiful and grand and has every amenity to make your cruising experience memorable. This is not a ship just for kids. There are plenty of areas just for adults and the kids have their own deck! The service is impeccable and the entertainment is the best at sea.

First stop; Nassau, Bahamas. You can walk right into the shopping district downtown.
The food will surprise you with it's variety and sophistication. There is a spa onboard as well as Palo; there adult only signature restaurant that serves dinner as well as a Sunday brunch and afternoon tea.

The excursions available range from highly active fishing, snorkeling, and scuba to more laid back. There are harbor cruises, sailboat trips, pirate tours, and sightseeing. And don't forget the Atlantis resort where you can spend the whole day shopping, gambling, visiting the amazing aquarium, or trying out all of there slides at the waterpark.

If you aren't sure whether you should cruise or not. Try this cruise. It is short, so if you don't like it, you can get off soon and it isn't as expensive so you won't feel like you're spending your money on a crapshoot.
